Parents say no to NS stint after son’s death
MALACCA: Lim Geok Kim and his wife Meng Yeok are still mourning the loss of their son Ricky who died after completing his three-month national service stint recently.
Now, they are traumatised at the thought of their only surviving child, Jane, 17, being selected to undergo NS training and are adamant not to let her go.
“We are not going to push our luck this time. She will stay with us at home no matter what,” added Lim, 46, yesterday who is a renovation worker from Tanjung Kling.
“If the authorities want to catch anyone, just take us both. We will not let her go.”
Although they do not blame the authorities for the son’s death, the couple said they could not risk losing Jane.
“Our family was only just recently united after Ricky’s three-month absence from home,” he said during a press conference held by Kota Melaka MP Sim Tong Him.
They had recently found out from the NS website that Jane was selected for training.
Ricky, 20, had returned after his NS training on Sept 6 and died on Sept 15.
The SMK Catholic High student did not complain of any illness or pain prior to his death but he did complain about the camp’s hygiene and yellowish water supply.
